dot matrix printing slow in windows xp

By ekestel ·
Hi, ia recently had to upgrade a hard drive on the computer that was running windows 98 to a windows xp pro, everything works great except the speed of the epson lq590. the reports from access database come out 2-3 times slower than on windows 98. I upgraded the memory from 128 mb ram on win 98 to a 512 mb ram on win xp pro, i also tried switching from parallel to usb but no luck, is there a special setting or the win 98 drivers for that printer are better than xp drivers? Epson support has no clue. Please Help!

I had a similar problem...using the 'generic text only' driver solved it.

The problem, in some cases, is that some printer drivers either don't print bi-directionally or else do not recognize the internal fonts of the device, and attempt to render Windows true-type fonts as graphics, which is very very slow.

Make sure you have selected a font for the report that is a device font for the printer..
